Standing at the summit cross and enjoying the breathtaking panoramic view of the surrounding mountains
, just as the Iceman
did 5,300 years ago – the new viewing platform „Iceman Ötzi Peak”
makes this possible.
The route up to the viewing platform at 3,251 meters above sea level begins in Maso Corto
. The Glacier Cable Car takes you up to 3,212 meters, to the mountain station and the Glacier Hotel Grawand
, the highest hotel in Europe.
The steel construction
, designed and built by South Tyrolean technicians and companies
, can be reached safely and comfortably
via a staircase with handrail in 10 minutes from the mountain station
Breathtaking view at 3.251 meters altitude
Once at the top, you will discover the snowfield of the Similaun (3,606 m), where the oldest and most famous glacier mummy in the world was found on September 19th 1991: Ötzi
You can also catch a glimpse of the Alto Giogo Glacier
and the watershed
that forms the national border between Austria and Italy
: Up here, the water flows once into the Black Sea and once into the Adriatic.
The path of Transhumance
(sheep driving hikes) can also be seen from the platform. This centuries-old tradition
was recently listed as a UNESCO World Heritage
Site. THE VIEWING PLATFORM ICEMAN ÖTZI PEAK REMAINS CLOSED IN CASE OF BAD WEATHER!
